West Ham United will clash heads with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier this evening as they hoped to pick up a positive result on the road. The Hammers made a quick start to the game and took the lead in the tenth minute courtesy of a decent finish from Jarrod Bowen. However, the Foxes equalised just before the stroke of half-time as Youri Tielemans scored from the penalty spot. Both teams went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.
Leicester completed the turnaround in the 57th minute when Ricardo Perreira scored with an excellent finish. However, Craig Dawson netted in injury-time and salvaged a point for West Ham as the match finished 2-2 with both teams sharing the spoils.
Let’s take a look at how each West Ham player performed during the clash against the Foxes.
